Wrongful death lawsuit filed against Alden Long Grove for nursing home neglect

Last November, 82-year Michail Aronov was admitted to the hospital with diagnoses of medication poisoning, dehydration, malnutrition, kidney damage, metabolic imbalance, significant weight loss and adverse changes in his mental status after being neglected in a Chicago area nursing home. A lawsuit filed today by Steven M. Levin of Chicago-based law firm Levin & Perconti, alleges that Alden Long Grove neglected Michail so badly during his residency at Alden Long Grove, that they caused his death. Ultimately Michail died from complications of sepsis, urinary obstruction, and a urinary tract infection. During his 8 month stay at the Alden facility, among other things Michail lost 15% of his body weight, a factor that caused the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) to cite the home for neglect and improper nursing care.
